Waiting on Throne of Glass

Waiting On Wednesday

Throne of Glass
By Sarah J. Maas
Expected Publication: August 7

From Goodreads:
After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the kings council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

This cover looks familiar. I think I've seen it on other people's blogs. I like the cover, but today I read more about the description. ASSASSINS! Ooh, that sounds good. And she's a GIRL assassin. Even better. And She's going up against MEN. GIRL POWER!


  1. Great pick! This book definitely has some hype. I love the whole assassin idea. It sounds so awesome!!

    Thanks for sharing. :)
